70% merlot 20% cabernet franc and 10% cabernet sauvignon. 14.3% potential alcohol. Planted on 37 hectares of limestone mixed clay and limestone and alluvial sand soils. Vines are harvested by hand and yield 30 hl/ha. Aged in 80% new oak. Dark as night this St. Emilion is one of 2011 s top wines. Rich chalky aromas mix with violet plum and other red and black fruit on the nose. Full of power and grip on entry this has fine-grained tannins and high acidity levels with a fruity mid-palate and a long rich and firm finish. This will require 10 years in the cellar and should be enjoyed for two to three decades. Wow! From the Gerard Perse portfolio. Tasted three times. Enjoy 2024-2044+. Jeff Loo.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Fabulous aromas of blackberries and cassis. A purity of fruit here. Full body, with silky tannins. Powerful finish. Muscular for the vintage. Gorgeous. I like the brightness and clarity to it. 94-95" JS 04/12 "Very ripe, but also very focused, with a distilled raspberry essence racing from start to finish, while extra licorice snap, blueberry coulis and plum pâte de fruit notes fill in the background. Long and velvety through the finish. A beautiful effort for the vintage...92-95" WS 04/12 "Another terrific success for the flagship estate (a 92-acre vineyard situated on the famed limestone and clay-rich slopes of Cote Pavie) of Chantal and Gerard Perse, the 2011 Pavie is composed of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The harvest took place between September 20-30, with final yields of a mere 28 hectoliters per hectare. The natural alcohol is 14.3%, and the 2011 may be the biggest, richest, most massive wine of the vintage. With thrilling levels of concentration, tremendous purity, high but sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, and terrific intensity, depth and palate presence, this larger-than-life effort will require 5-8 years of cellaring, and should age effortlessly over the following 25-30 years...93-95" WA 04/12
